15,000 LSD blots seized, 6 arrested as NCB busts darknet-based drug network


New Delhi: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has seized around 15,000 LSD blots, and arrested six people suspected to be part of a nationwide drug trafficking racket operational through the dark web, the agency said on Tuesday.


Besides 14,961 LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) blots, the federal agency said, it has also seized around 2.5kg imported marijuana and ₹4.65 lakh in cash over the last one week. This is the largest-ever seizure of LSD — a psychedelic drug —in a single operation in the country over the last two decades for which records are available, NCB officials said.

Initial investigation has revealed that the LSD blots and imported marijuana were sourced from the United States, Poland and the Netherlands, NCB said.

Officials familiar with the matter said that six suspects were arrested over the last one week from Goa, Delhi, Noida (Uttar Pradesh), Kerala, and Rajasthan. Citing ongoing probe, the agency did not reveal the identity of the suspects. All the arrested are between 22 and 28 years old and do not have a prior criminal record, officials said.
